Yeah the reason I asked about pistols that don't suck is because if the TEC-22 wasn't a jamtacular piece of crap (from every review I've ever heard) I'd have one. It would be amazing if somebody would make a full size .22LR pistol that had a 30 round magazine.
+1. Would buy one in a heart beat. Many people don't think much of a 22 as a defensive round but I would carry a 22 with a 30 round mag and be perfectly happy with it.
Long ago I read of a pistol that held 20 22LR, don't remember now what it was. But it was said that the pistol was only in production for a few years and then pulled because no one was buying it.
I bet people would buy them now. Cost of ammo being like it is. A gun like that (22LR with a 20 to 30 rounds capacity) it would be hard to keep on the shelves.
